If you’ve never gone to a spa before, or you’re just starting out, you may not really know how to act… etiquette wise. This might make you feel nervous and uncomfortable because you aren’t sure of what you should do. So here are some things to help you out and leave you with a great spa experience.
TURN YOUR PHONE OFF
You may not need to worry about this one because a lot of spas ask you to leave your phone whenever you go in for your massage. A phone creates a distraction for both you and your therapist. And it’s pretty obvious that if we had our phones while getting a massage, we would be too busy on social media and talking to people to get a good quality massage and really relax.
BE THERE ON TIME
Depending on the class of the spa you’re going to or what it’s for really depends on how early you should be there. Of course being there a little bit earlier is better than showing up late and missing time from your session. Most of the time you don’t really need to show up too early because there’s not too much to do before but if you’re going to a busier spa, definitely go at least thirty minutes before your appointment to make sure you’re there and able to get in line (if there is one) and be ready.
Also, there are a few things you could do before your massage to help get you ready or be more relaxed. You should call ahead and ask about these things before you go so you can be prepared and know what to expect and so can they.
Give yourself time to get there and be ready regardless. You may need time to do any paperwork or take a shower. You should especially consider a shower if you’ve been in a pool or hot tub. Ten minutes isn’t really enough time for you to get ready for your session.
MAKE IT CLEAR WHAT YOU WANT
Whenever you call ahead to schedule an appointment, they will ask whether you would like a male or female therapist. If you don’t really mind either way, you will probably end up with a male because they are less booked and asked for. However, no matter which gender, you should end up with a nice and relaxing massage.
Throughout the massage if there is anything you want or need, or anything you feel uncomfortable with, make sure you speak up. It’s all about your comfort and relaxation.
If you’re new to going to spas you may be curious about what it’s like while during the massage. Can you talk? Are you supposed to be silent? It’s up to you. You can have a conversation with your therapist or you can stay quiet, it’s all about what you’re comfortable with. However if you’re trying to relax and your therapist won’t stop chatting, you can say something nicely about how you’re just going to rest. But if you do decide to engage in conversation keep your voice down and soft, same with anywhere in the spa. It’s supposed to be relaxing, no need for being loud.
Tipping at a spa is much like at a restaurant. If you go to a day spa you should tip about fifteen to twenty percent. If you go to a resort spa you don’t have to pay a tip but the service fee doesn’t go fully to the therapist. If you have a gift certificate ask if the tip is covered as well.
Just like at a lot of places there will be a cancellation fee if you don’t cancel your appointment before 24 hours. Sometimes a masseuse might come in just for certain appointments, and if you don’t call ahead they’re there for no reason, not getting paid.
